Apple claims Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 infringes their Patents
Wednesday, November 7th, 2012
Big surprise, Apple has filed another patent infringement suit against Samsung now claiming the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Jelly Bean software are both in violation. Yes, Apple claims that Samsung has infringed on their patents with Jelly Bean which isn’t even their software.
This comes after the October 1st ruling by Judge Lucy Koh that rescinded the ban on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. After that ruling Apple still objected the ban that is still lifted. We can only assume that Apple is holding a grudge and trying to continue litigation as a defensive move at this point.
Keep this in mind, Apple is suing for patent infringement on features that their devices don’t even use. One of the newer cases is also so low that its focus is on the fact that Samsung devices are able to use a stylus.
Judge Grewel declined to make a preliminary ruling for fear of either company filing any more lawsuits. This should slow down the slew of lawsuits by both companies already seen by the trial date of 2014. This suit is a waste of time at this point since the impact on sales will be minimal if anything by 2014.
